A Hotel Stay Is Never Boring When Jedis Fight In The Lobby
In the ever-expanding universe of Twitter, there is one particular trend @HotelChatter happens to quite enjoy: candid hotel photos. These pics range from stunning views to anti-views to celebrity tomfoolery and everything in between. And we can't get enough of 'em! Every Monday, we commemorate our favorite "Twitpic of the Week." Got a favorite of your own? Want to show off your sweet suite? Send it in!
We don't know exactly what might have prompted this awesome public display of nerd-dom (Star Wars convention? Flashmob? Family reunion?), but we are so very glad @k4ng took the time to capture these saber-wielding Jedis in the lobby of the Renaissance Austin. And what better place: with all the rooms looking down onto the lobby, pretty much every guest had front row seats to the show!
On our last visit to Austin, most of the hotels were full up with SXSW musicians, filmmakers, attendees and media types. But clearly, the real magic happens about a month later...
"As if I needed MORE reasons to want to move to Austin... Jedi fight in the Renaissance Hotel."
Luckily, Renaissance Hotels have a pretty good sense of humor, and really, no hotel with any shred of decency is about to shut down an impromptu light saber battle in the middle of their lobby. We're just glad the whole thing took place on the ground, and not up in some revolving restaurant.
